and the fbi traced the intrusions to hackers in china who it says were employing techniques associated in the past with hackers from the chinese military. another newspaper, "the wall street journal" says it, too, was hit by chinese hackers who wanted to monitor the china reporting. no attempt, the journal says, to steal customer data. in beijing, a spokesman for china's foreign ministry called any suggestion that the chinese were involved "irresponsible" but the times says the attack coincided with a series of stories it posted on the website which reported that relatives of china's prime minister had he massed a fortune worth several billion dollars through business deals. >> we first noticed the unusual activity on our network shortly after we published our article about the outgoing chinese ruling family. >> reporter: security experts and the fbi say china has been targeting news organizations and overseas for the past few years. one goal is to identify the sources of news leaks within the chinese government. it's also part of a broader pattern of hacking and related attacks on ban
to touch someone quickly. this also is necessary in the western pacific where china, for example, has 80 sub marines just to our 50. even john mccain who was quite critical in the hearing said this nomination should go through. >> right. >> well, yeah. on that point, it looks like the nomination will be confirmed. the problem is it loonlgs like there's a filibuster or attempt at a filibuster and that means democrats and the white house have to come up with 60 votes to get this through. mccain has indicated to break a filibuster. looks like they would have the votes to do that. do you think we have sort of crossed a line here, bad precedent set for future cabinet nominations? never before has there been a filibuster of a defense secretary nominee. only two rejected since 1959. nobody tried to filibuster one in that time. are we creating bad precedent? >> why the senate has the right as a senator said who is supporting senator hagel to do a filibuster. i think it would set a bad precedent because as many people often very conservative have said in this particular case, the president has th
. joining us now is the author of "china airborne" and the national correspondent of the atlantic, james fallows. good afternoon, james. >> thank you for coming on. the chinese came out today and strongly denied all of these allegations. should they be believed? is this just a case of threat inflation as we like to call it? >> the chinese statement was in keeping with its government's usual response to accusations like this. they said that they never have endorsed hacking of anybody else, they resolutely enforce their laws. there's no violation of privacy laws in china. i think that's difficult to take seriously. i think the main point here is that for decades, for more than a decade now, there have been increasing both government and corporate concerns in the u.s. about hacking from a lot of places, including china, and the news in this latest report is tying it more specifically to the chinese military than had been done in the previous encounters. >> now, they appear to have targeted companies like facebook, apple, twitter and google among others. isn't this an indication that they we
korea is pretty much sanctioned out at this point. unless china decides to cut off oil supplies and other goods to north korea, it appear there's no stopping the north korean regime at this point. >> what's china's response? immediate neighbors to the west. a blast -- if i were china, i'd be a hell of a lot more concerned about them setting off nuclear devices than in the united states. look at the map, they're literally in the shadow of china? any response from china or belief inside the pentagon or this administration china will eventually step up and start exerting more pressure on the north koreans to become a more responsible state? >> one of the biggest fears in that region is it will spark some kind of regional nuclear arms race. both south korea and japan in the past have threatened to start developing their own nuclear weapons. no signs they're doing that yet. we go back to china. the only thing that might make this a little bit different is china leaned heavily on north korea not to conduct this test. for north korea to do this is like in your face beijing. there may b
time zeroed in not just on china, but a particular building in shanghai, which is believed to house a unit, a top elite unit of the chinese army. >> i think the difference in the long report that we published in "the times" yesterday, which was based on what they did, then we went off on other security firms to see if we could confirm their findings, and we did. was that for the first time these attacks that the chinese have largely denied are coming out of the government have been taken right down to a neighborhood that's dominated by the headquarters of this unit 61398. it's the cyber unit, a major cyber unit, of the people's liberation army. and the element of surprise here is how much is coming either out of that building or you've got to believe out of the noodle shops surrounding that building, given the volume, it's hard to believe -- >> we're talking about thousands of cyber attacks against at least 141 companies, 27 industries, at least according to this one report that officials have confirmed for both you and me. >> that's right. and this was just following one major chin
of cyber attacks from china. i have never seen so much public conversation about this. there's the new report that suggested for the first time that it was not just china generically, but china and this particular unit, an elite unit, of the military. >> what we've seen over the past two weeks is really an explosion of press around the cyber security issue, and i frankly think that's a very good thing because what people on the inside and people in corporate america have seen over the past couple of years is an absolute explosion of theft the u.s. corporate secrets and intellectual property by the chinese made public, as you said, this week, at least some of that by the people's liberation army. what some in the u.s. intelligence community have termed the largest transfer of wealth many history as the chinese have taken the sensitive economic secrets from the u.s. and then put them to use for chinese economic purposes. that has -- those reports along with presidential activity and the issuing of the executive order to try to strengthen u.s. sovereign defenses, those are early steps, bu
foreign policy challenges. china during the last couple of days we've seen this report last week. very well regarded confirmed report that has actually traced china's seeber attacks back to a military unit in shanghai, and that is only one part of it according to although experts we've talked to in and outside of government. what should the u.s. do in reaction? >> well, i'm very concerned. i read the report. i've also read our reports classified out of intelligence, and i think the mendient report which is now unclassified, is public, is essentially correct. i think china has to face up to it. i think our government needs to sit down with china forth with, present the evidence to china, ask china for its investigation, and press, press, press. this is going to no good end unless there is some agreement between our two nations and the world committee -- community for an agreement which is enforceable. one of these days there is going to be a huge cyber attack somewhere, and we must prevent that from happening. >> we're not without crisis. how about afghanistan? in the last 24 hours we'v
's the headquarters of unit 61398. >> i think it was time to let the world know, it's actually not just from china, it's the chinese government sanctioning these attacks. >> reporter: among the targets, america's very infrastructure. >> now our enemies are sabotaging our power grid, our financial institutions, our air traffic control systems. >> reporter: other targets of chinese hackers familiar brand names like coca-cola, facebook, "the new york times," on "wash post" and "wall street journal." and only today, apple. the hackers have user names like ugly gorilla and dota. according to this instructional video from mandiant. >> here we see dota logging into one of his operational e-mail accounts. he's used it for spear phishing and generating additional accounts. >> reporter: what is it? how hackers campaign access into a network by sending deceptive e-mails tricking users into clicking on a malicious link to a phony website. once the victims provide passwords, pnc.i.n. numbers, they're in. sometimes for years with no one noticing. >> when these companies are engaging in business with china, they're
. clearly there differences of opinion twebetween us and china. he wants to play the role of diplomat and find a way forward with the chinese without confronting the military. i think that's something the obama administration more broad lie believes in. >> he will be leaving on that trip on february 24th through march 6th. a big wide swath for secretary kerry whoa will be marking his mark to start. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> we are following breaking news any moment now. the wife of jesse jackson junior will enter a guilty plea to federal tax fraud charges stemming from her husband's misuse of funds. the former congressman entered with his wife before entering his own guilty plea. after that hearing, jackson asked reporters to tell everyone he is sorry. he could be facing several years in prison. the justice correspondent joins me now. this was not a big surprise that we saw this morning. explain what comes next for the congressman as well as his wife. >> he wife will be pleading guilty in a few minutes. they just walked into court holding hands we are told by our producer. jac
major ally china condemned the underground test in an emergency meeting and considering further sanctions. >> countries around the world including every member of this security council agree that this test was an extremely regrettable act, that further undermines international peace and security. >> nbc news pentagon krontd jim miklaszewski joins us live. we just got a note secretary kerry was informed just before 11:00 p.m. yesterday and he is also spoken with the chinese foreign minister wels japan foreign minister on this issue. what are we likely to hear and see next? >> reporter: the focus is on china. even though china may have joined in condemning the act, the proof is in the pudding. they will have to step up and actually join in enforcing stricter, tighter sanctions against north korea. all this time, while the international community particularly the u.s. has been ratcheting up those sanctions against north korea, china has continued to provide oil and other critical supplies to north korea ignoring the international sanctions. so it really falls on china at this point
. the seeber attacks. i know you know china very well. how tough should the president be? is it time to start really putting this front and center? >> we have to put it front and center. not just with china where, with russia wra. this notion that somehow china will be involved. we have allies that are doing the same thing, and we've been doing it for years. stealing our secrets, intellectual property, so it's been going on, and i think we have to take an aggressive position on this, and i think the president by setting up this command, cyber command, saying we have to defend our infrastructure, and the pentagon's infrastructure to be sure, and then we have to have capability. those kinds will help deter some of the activities taking place right now. >> i remember once interviewing a former french official who was in charge of the french intelligence operation against our splekt wal property and trade secrets, and he was very open about it as a retired espionage agent for france. thank you very much, bill cohen. >> good to be with you. >> up neck, fighting that cyber war, we talk to former ho
. >> this is really a message for the united states. >> one thing that would get their attention and china's attention is if you give nuclear weapons to south korea and china. i think he looks like a knuckle head. >> like a nincompoop. ♪ >> we are now less than five hours away from the president's state of the union address where he'll lay out the agenda for his second term in office. and it's safe to assume that his preparations received a severe jolt this morning with the disturbing news that north korea had carried out another nuclear weapons test in violation of the united nations, and this one significantly stronger than their two previous tests. and it's in this alarming context that republicans are seeking at this very moment to stymie the president's nominee for secretary of defense. the senate armed services committee has been considering the nomination of chuck hagel for more than an hour, and all against a backdrop of republican opposition. >> with respect to chuck hagel and brennan, defense and cia just in the last week, their performance in front of the committees that have to confirm t
that he is going to try to live up to his father's policies, rather than any kind of compromise. china not indicating yet whether -- we don't have many options if china doesn't join in terms of tougher sanctions. now from what we know at least, this was a much larger blast, and they claim we can't prove it. they claim it was a smaller device. it could mean they've made real progress on miniatureization of a warhead. >> this is very worrisome from a number of perspectives. it's certainly a provocation. i think many believe it's meant to consolidate this new young leader's power inside north korea. it puts owes a very negative trajectory. i think it's imperative that the international community does have a strong response. as you said, china is critical. china holds a lot of the cards with regard to shaping north korea's behavior and their response. >> we sent up aircraft with sensors to try to determine whether this was a uranium-fueled blast or plutonium. plutonium is the old way. uranium would be more worrying because it would increase the likelihood that they would be proliferate and

know, even china told them not to go ahead with another test, so i guess what more sanctions do anything? what can the u.n., the international community do? >> well, there has to be a pay back for what north korea just did with this underground nuclear test. yes, more sanctions, but the key is going to be china china really has not done as much as they should in terms of curbing food and fuel. i think they'll be up against the wall and they probably will take that step. i think as you said, chris, after these additional sanctions, what next? we can't continue to isolate north korea because they have nuclear weapons. they have a million and a half men in arms. they have missiles. they're a danger in northeast asia. so what needs to happen is a new kind of diplomacy, new kind of dialog. i think south korea, the new leadership in china and south korea in the region needs to step up with the united states and develop a credible diplomatic strategy, one that involves north korea saying to them, look, this nuclear path is going to be totally against your interests. let's find ways to
to engage in dialogue. how realistic is that when you have them even snubbing china, one of their allies? >> one of the things you learn about north korea is not to be predictable. you don't know what they're going to do next. they don't think the way we do. what i think we need to do is find a new way for the countries in the region and the united states to deal with them. i think first they have to pay. there has to be payback for these tests. that means more sanctions, south korea tightening their belt. but china is the key. and china up till now has not wanted to put the screws on north korea. they could affect their food, their fuel. they have leverage over them. but i don't think they're ready to exercise it. hopefully this new test will do that. but if that's not the case, i think we need a dialogue with the north korean leadership, we being the six-party country, south korea and the u.s. isolating them has to be part of a policy. but then what next? and i'm hopeful that senator kerry who has a record of negotiation and diplomacy will look at this and say, hey, we need a new appro
broker and owner of dallas-based china advantage. >> we are the bridge between idea and the product. so if we want to turn the idea to real production in the first stage is you have to give us a design, you have to give us a drawing. >> ray was willing to work with us at that point. not everybody would. some of the factories want you to have a certain volume, certain knowledge, certain business, already established. ray was going to take us from the start and walk us through and hold our hand and say, you guys are new, we can start with small quantities, we can tweak this. >> and we had to decide how much of the product we wanted to get made, then he put his team together to source all the different components of the product and came back to us with a price. >> with ray's help the factories in china were all lined up. while the retailers were waiting to receive their orders. the next step, select a fulfillment company to do the receiving, packing and shipping of the merchandise. that's where they landed in serious trouble. >> well, we tried to do due diligence. we weren't that educated
to direct your attention to a little skirmish in the china sea and the bbc it is calling it a little skirmish that could have big, big consequences, think world war iii consequences, and it is because of these teeny islands that are inhabitable, and even the name is in dispute with china calling them one thing and japan calling them another. the dispute was reignited when the chinese government accused tokyo of stealing, and sent two naval enforcement ships to the area in a show of force. across china, anti-japanese protests started causing a protest of japanese protests and those who use them. and the protests are so bad that a chinese man made the simple mistake of driving a japanese car in a chai neads city of chian and was beat sewn badly he is paralyzed. this week, a chinese minister accused a japanese vessel of target i targeting the radar on a japanese ship off of the islands, but the chinese officials are disputing it happened. now think about this, the world's second and the third largest economies playing chicken in the pacific over a dispute of uninhabited islands, but if
, you know, if mali is a priority, egypt is a priority, turkey is a priority, the conflict between china, japan, and south korea is a worry, the worry about a north korean nuclear test is a priority. we could go on and on. a secretary of state's job really is to keep all those balls in the air so, frankly, we're on tv talking about them as little as possible. >> right. you know, michael, the other thing that strikes me that now-secretary kerry is going to have to deal with is the changing nature of some of these engagements. it's not just drones and deployments but what's the complement of troops we send? what's the complement of non -- of folks from the state department that we send? the relationship between the pentagon and the state department seems to have changed as well. how will he weigh in on that? >> yeah, those are good questions. i think if i could just take two examples. with syria and also with afghanistan, you have questions of where the united states has to figure out some next policy steps that are pretty big and get to the question you raise, the balance between troops p
in china due to great sales. a right wing newport completely butchered the story, saying that the jeep was considering giving up the united states and shifting production to china. enter mitt romney. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians is thinking of moving all production to china. >> there was also the lie about president barack obama never saying benghazi was an act of terrorism. >> obama knowingly lied to the american people. obama created a conspiracy theory and coordinated a campaign of deceit to distract from the truth that affects our national security. >> mitt romney listened to this kind of stuff for weeks. and because he relied on this junk, he walked into the biggest trap on the largest possible stage. >> i think it's interesting the president just said something which is on the day after the attack, he went in the rose garden and said that this was an act of terror. >> that's what i said. >> you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. >> no acts of terror will ever shake
back to here but talking about the animal trade, it is really a cultural thing. china's one of the main consumers of these products and what happens is like i went to cambodia, laos, thailand, all these places. these people are raised culturally to eat some of the products and maybe bear or bear bile or a tiger and because they think it makes them more of a man and more of a smaller care and maybe on special occasions and so on and is forth but with a growing population in china, a main cause of the problems and more and more of this culture that thinks that you need this, there's more of a demand so it goes back to the poor peasant, the poor farmer and person that doesn't have the ability to survive. they're hunters and gatherers still in the environments and a guy comes in town and goes, i can make you a fast buck if you get me this little animal. they go, oh, we have them everywhere. they grab them, they collect them, they hand them to the next guy. they have their money and they keep going. what they don't realize is the degradation to the environment and to the whole system of the
not to do. does china now do the ultimate and take really strong sanction measures against their assets? >> right. this is the big question is where is china's red line, and one hopes that it was crossed this time. in addition to all the things you mentioned, andrea, the other thing is that the north koreans did this on chinese new year. in my experience in six-party talks the time that the chinese got the most emotional was when the north koreans were doing things that then pushed that into working during the chinese new year holiday, which is a big holiday in china. i imagine they're pretty upset right now. >> this is what susan rice had to say today. >> north korea's continued work on its nuclear and missile programs seriously undermines regional and international peace and security and threatens the security of a number of countries, including the united states. >> now, you've got the south korean inaugural on february 25th. the state of the union tonight, as you point out the chinese new year, and there's another problem. we don't know yet whether this was plutonium device, which i
.com. >>> on our radar this morning, house democrats kick off the new year by outraising the republican foes. china denies any responsibility for major computer hackings here in the united states. but first, virginia's lieutenant governor bill bolling who said by march 14th he'll announce if he'll run as governor, dropped more hints yesterday while talking to a radio show. >> well, i think it's 50/50, john. i said when we went into this process that there were three questions i had to answer. first is is there a realistic opening in this campaign for a credible independent candidate, and would i be viewed as a credible independent candidate. we've answered that question. there clearly is an opening in this campaign for a credible independent candidate, and i think all of the evidence that we've seen indicate that i would be viewed as a credible independent candidate. >> folks, this is about money. can he find the money? >> bolling had started a bid running as a republican, but opted out of the race when -- instead of having a primary. bolling has been making a lot of noises criticizing his own gove
the stock market doing fine. that might have a lot more to do with china than what is to happen march 1st. secondly, let's say nothing happens. the unemployment rate is stuck around 8%. this is a pretty lousy time for nothing to happen. in fact, if you look at the cbo projections, the projection with the sequester taking effect is for the unemployment rate to be 7.9% the first half of this year, 8% for the second half of this year. so, basically stuck at a place that's really very disadvantageous for so many workers. >> jared, let me interrupt this colloquy here and ask you, jared, we know that there are other looming fiscal fights, the march 27th deadline for the continuing resolution, but the hill is reporting that the republicans, at least, want this fight to take place on the sequester. i will read you a quote, "we are going to take a stand on the sequester, said a republican senator, the sequester effects programs president obama likes and we think it's the best way to get his attention on spending." which is maybe why you're seeing so much political posturing in the days leading up
to china. according to that report, this building is where the chinese military essentially set up shot. we'll get reaction from the white house. >>> plus, first lady michelle obama -- well, she is finally explaining, not that she has to, but she's explaining the motivation for her new hairstyle. the huffington post called total shock to the system. >> i couldn't get a sports car. they won't let me bungee jump. so, instead, i cut my bangs here. >> so you went for the bangs? >>> time for "your business" entrepreneur of the week. joanne and christy created decorations for the school lockers when others wanted to buy them, too, they created locker looks. for more, watch "your business" sunday mornings at 7:30 on msnbc. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.

china will do as well. >> this is a problem for china, because china generally has a non-interventionist policy. doesn't like to get too deeply involved into the foreign policies of other countries. it doesn't want too many more sanctions on north korea, as north korea has already sort of sanctioned out, for fear that north korea could collapse into anarchy and you'd have refugees flowing over the border. so, yes, this is a challenge for the neighbors. but this is really a message for the united states. you remember last year, north korea tried to launch a satellite into space, and i was in north korea at the time. it went up for about 90 seconds and then blew up. everyone knew at the time, including intelligence officials, that north korea would try again, and that once they got a successful missile launch, they would probably have a nuclear test. because combined, it's very powerful. now, u.s. intelligence officials have told me that north korea right now has probably a dozen to, at the most, several dozen weapons-deliverable nuclear devices. this is a serious challenge
season. >> reporter: what is going on? analysts say the reasons are many, china is demanding more and more every day to power their growing economy, just as opec cut their output, and here at home, refineries are shutting down for maintenance as they prepare to switch to a summer blend. then market speculation and a weaker dollar play a role. >> we have to work, we keep coming to work every day. you have to put gas in your car to come to work. >> reporter: 43 cents in a month. >> that was nbc's tom costello. >>> after a weekend, the president and staffers will be back at work this morning, but with only ten days to prevent the automatic spending cuts, one group will be absent. >> reporter: good morning, congress is away all week on recess, now strategists say they will make calls and try to come up with alternative savings. but voters here at the capitol say that is not good enough. president obama is back at the white house after a weekend golfing in florida. but congress is still away on recess, taking a break announced monday. voters in the capitol are upset that they actually

of the cyber attacks that have been attributed to china against a number of corporations aring, including now the "new york times" and wall street journal. what do you think is first and foremost on john kerry's plate? >> i think that some of that is just going to be dictated, as you said, by crisis, by how much happens, how much quickly between israel and syria or what exactly happened in turkey today. i think that a big difference between what he was facing and what clinton was facing when she took the job is that obama is less interested now in the debate about what he wants to do in places like afghanistan. now he has more of a sense and wants to act a little more quickly. also, kerry has such a different task than hillary in the sense that his career, his run for the president is really behind him, and hers might now be ahead of her. they have a different -- they are coming to the job in a different way, and it's a different task -- set of tasks within the cabinet from obama's perspective as well. >> now, one of the things that was very clear was that hillary clinton did not have a clear

of chinese history on the cover. you have my grandparents who were born in china. my parents who were born in taiwan. me and my brother were born in america. the interesting thing -- >> there's the cover. >> there's the cover. the thing occurs of my parents being -- my mom had me, like, her third year in america, so i group and experienced -- >> fresh off the boat. i experienced america along side my mom and dad, and they really didn't know to tell me, hey, watch the christmas story. i remember going to people's houses and be, like, why does your dad have a leg lamp? i never understood it. we never saw those movies. i didn't know who jimmy stewart was. i didn't know anything. i was able to piece together bits and pieces of american culture that just made sense to me. you know? i think that's why my identity is so i haddo sin accuratic and so weird. i never allowed people to tell me you are supposed to like this. you are supposed to listen to this. you are supposed to, you know, relate to this. i went and i found things like jackie robinson and charles barclay and mark twain and jonathan sw
is -- this could be a nixon goes to china moment for tom coburn and the nra and gun safety. >> where is john feehery? where were you? do you want something done on gun safety or not? >> i would like something done on gun safety. i would like something done -- i would like more aggressive effort to get guns away from violent criminals. i'd like to get guns out -- make sure they don't get in the hands of crazy people. that's where i am. and i think that we do need to have a more aggressive background check and i have been pretty public on that. >> how about the president? does he have to recognize reality here and go for what he can get? get a single, not a home run? even though he knees he's giving protection to the people on the center right and right? still be able to say they did something. there's a lot of strategy here. >> there's a lot of strategy. i used to work for senator kennedy and senator kennedy after he got past his 30s and 40s decided what you should do in legislating is take what you can get and come back for the rest later. i think you saw that with the president on the budge

in places like china, america's getting more competitive and more product. and after shedding jobs for more than ten year, our manufacturers have now added about 500,000 jobs over the past three years. and i mentioned this last night, caterpillar, which i know you guys supply, they're bringing jobs back from japan. ford is bringing jobs back from mexico. after placing plants in other countries like china, intel is opening its most advanced plant here in the united states. apple is starting to make macs in america again. so, we're seeing this trend what we call insourcing. not just outsourcing. and the reason is because america's got outstanding workers. we're starting to produce more homegrown energy which is driving down our energy costs. and obviously, we still got the biggest market in the world. and if we, you know, try to improve our infrastructure a little bit more, then we're going to be even that much more competitive. now, i want to be honest with you, we're not going to bring back every job that's been lost to outsourcing and automation over the last decade. i was talking to some

of nature magazine. there are a lot of folks that say, okay, well, if we don't take this energy, china will, and we're just going to be more reliant on questionable states to supply our energy. >> well, we can't drill our way out of the problem. america is facing a climate crisis, and nowhere and never before has that not been more real to the average american. with the droughts m midwest, the fires in the west, the deracho in the southeast, hurricane sandy, americans are seeing the affects of the climate on steroids, and our polling shows that 65% of them say -- know that they need to take action on climate now. keystone locks us into a dirty energy future. we have to make mooufl aggressively to a clean energy future. since president obama took office, wind has doubled in those four years, and solar has increased by a factor of five. we have clean energy solutions. that is our future. mesh innovation is not about keystone and dirty fuels. it's about clean energy, clean sustainable manager. >> the white house is talking about getting involved in the gay marriage debate and immigration refor
allies and also, you know, reen force the importance of the relationship of china, so doing the rebalance there made perfect sense. there have been achievements. not only a stable relationship with china, with managing difficult issues, but a significant opening with a country like burma which is not something we expected in 2009. we face -- we confront a different challenge in 2013. obviously, the situation with respect to iran is still uncertain. a lack of progress there with the past four years, although intensified sanctions. a very difficult situation in syria. you know, and the potential -- continued potential as to what to do about, you know, the israeli-palestinian situation which we receive renewed tensions over a death of a prisoner and there. part of what the secretary of state does is he is the face of the obama foreign policy wresh also is out there trying to determine what is possible, what can be achieved, what are the options for the president, and then he carries out, you know, the president's foreign policy. john kerry would be, you know, acting just as hillary clinton d
the greatest success story in the history of the world in terms of pulling people out of poverty it's china. china in the last generation, hundreds of millions of people in the middle class and the foreign aid community has to look at that and ask themselves what they could be doing differently and i think it can work but these giant programs often are not what works and certainly when you start displacing local entrepreneurs and telling local people, we can do this for you better than you can do it for yourself, you set up a culture of dependency and then you snuff out people who are coming up with local solutions to local problems and not really what "the night ranger" is about and it's a thriller but there is that world view, my view of this informs this and i'm not afraid to say that. >> it's my experience in meeting with refugees that foreign aid, a small percentage of donations of foreign aid actually get to the people that need it. i've seen that a lot sold on the black market. >> yes. >> a lot gets redirected to corrupt governments and even if the intentions are good and the ngo del
